STOP Drinking Bottled Water! Filter Your Own Water Instead

Best Home Water Filter Sacramento | Always Affordable Plumbing Sacramento and Solano

Plastic Bottled Water is a Waste of Money and is Destroying the Environment!

We have mentioned it before but it is worth mentioning again-bottled water is one of the worst things for the environment. Additionally, bottled water isn’t even necessarily “better” or “safer” to drink than tap water. This is 100% true if you have a home water filter in place. The worst thing about bottled water? It is expensive! When you consider these things, it really makes more sense to invest in your own home water filter system and stop buying bottled water. Here are some of the worst things about bottled water you should know:

Bottled Water is Expensive!

When you compare store bought bottled water in a plastic bottle, and compare it to tap water, it is estimated to cost over 3,000 times more!! We understand that sometimes you have to pay for the convenience of having water. However, when you consider just what a rip off it really is, it makes the cost of a home water filter system seem much more reasonable.

Bottled Water is Often Not Even “Better” Than Tap Water

Here is the ugly truth about the bottled water industry: you are paying for convenience and a fancy label, NOT for quality. Bottled water does not have to meet the same purity and safety requirements as your own tap water. While we understand (and certainly preach) that tap water is not always the best, it is important that you understand that bottled water is not necessarily any better, and may in fact be worse!

“Bottled water generally is no cleaner, or safer, or healthier than tap water. In fact, the federal government requires far more rigorous and frequent safety testing and monitoring of municipal drinking water.” –foodandwaterwatch.org, “Take Back the Tap”

It is Horrible for the Environment

The high cost and suspect quality of bottled water effects you directly every time you buy bottled water. However, what many people don’t realize is that bottled water is also ruining our environment in a major way.

  • According to the Container Recycling Institute, 86% of plastic water bottles used in America end up as garbage
  • This happens even though plastic water bottles are 100% recyclable
  • Additionally, it takes PET plastic 1,000 years to biodegrade in a landfill!
  • It is estimated that 1,000,000 plastic water bottles are sold EVERY MINUTE world wide
  • Production to make all these plastic water bottles requires about 17 million barrels of oil every year
  • Production to make all these plastic water bottles emits about 2.5 million tons of CO2 every year
  • Bottled water is ALSO a water waster! Studies estimate that it takes about 3 times the amount of water in a plastic water bottle just to produce it

A Small Investment Can Make A Huge Difference

When you consider the cost of bottled water, the fact that it isn’t typically much “better” or “safer” than tap water, and the tremendous environmental impact it causes, you really have to ask yourself if it is worth it anymore. If you truly want the highest quality, best tasting, safest water, you HAVE to invest in a home water filter system. From there just reuse a refillable, non plastic water bottle to ensure you are hydrating the right way. Not only will your body thank you, but so will the environment.
